Its fine with me. Even with the talent infusion, I dont want to be getting into a track meet with a team like the Pens. Would rather grind them to death.
Yeah, for whatever reason people tend to overlook the void in talent that this team has dealt with over the last few years. Tortorella went from "safe is death" to "six goalie system" in two seasons here. You have to think that now that our team can, you know, pass and score, that he'll open things up a tiny bit. I don't think he'll abandon the team identity, but I think we'll see him expand the structure to allow a bit more creativity on offense.
